Martin Luther on the Body, Our Bodies, and the Body of Creation

Tuesday, October 24, 2017 - 07:00pm to 08:30pm

Hoversten Chapel (625 22nd Ave. S., Minneapolis, MN 55454)

As part of the Reformation series, Mary Lowe, associate professor of Religion at Augsburg University, will give an evening lecture followed by discussion and a reception.


Martin Luther wrote, “There are three elements in a human, the body, the soul, and the spirit.” Many of today’s complex issues involve our bodies and the body of creation: climate change, gender and sexuality, abuse, and deforestation, etc. In Augsburg’s 2017 Heritage Lecture, Prof. Lowe will introduce Luther’s perspectives on bodies and creation and examine how—even today—his theology can help us better understand and address these embodied challenges.


This event is free and open to the public. More information.
